Today’s Devotional | Our Daily Journey | Burning all the bridges

The psalmist described a faith that took a risky leap, a faith that committed to God—closing off every competing option and burning every other bridge. “O Lord, I give my life to you. I trust in you, my God!” wrote the psalmist. “Do not let me be disgraced” (Psalm 25:1-2). These words remind me of the apostle Peter. When asked whether or not he too would abandon Jesus, Peter insisted that he would stay with the Lord, for there was nowhere else to go (John 6:68). For those of us who choose to follow Jesus, there inevitably comes a time when we must abandon our lives and our futures and entrust all into God’s care.
